The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a nationwide lockdown in India. This prevents daily wage workers and industrial workers from going to work, and their families have lost their only means of livelihood.
With this campaign, we are aiming to distribute 200 COVID Endurance Kits.
[Update: Due to the overwhelming support, we are distributing 500 Kits!]
In accordance with the FDA's recommendations for civilians, each kit contains 2, washable, reusable, elastic face masks.
The Government of India, the health ministry, and the World Health Organisation have declared face masks and disinfectants as essential items during this pandemic. They are the first line of defense against Covid-19.
The staple food, Rice and Dal (pulses) are essential parts of an Indian diet. With stores closed and markets operating at reduced capacity, access and availability have drastically reduced. Distributing these food items free of cost is thus one of our major goals with this campaign.
The problems brought upon by Covid-19 will continue to affect India long after Lockdown is over. Months of income has been lost, and many are facing tremendous financial difficulty.
All the funds raised through this campaign will be used to procure and produce the Endurance kits.
These kits will then be distributed in the underprivileged areas of Hingna, which is an industrial suburb of Nagpur city.
All produce will be locally sourced and all face masks are produced in Nagpur city. This provides employment and income to local small businesses in these times of distress.
We urge you all to donate as much as you can and pledge your help and support to those who need it in these tough times.
